Beetle bug (Issus coleoptratus)

I have again been running one of my log pile traps at the  end of the garden.  There was quite a good haul of invertebrates today and I took a photo of this little beetle bug sitting on top of the pile.

This species is common everywhere and often found on ivy.  I always see it around rotten logs and am still trying to work out what it eats.
